I decided to give Catch a try again at the food truck event in Hugh McCray Saturday October 24th.We ordered the lobster sliders, scallop tacos, fries and more, and fish tacos. I do not understand why their logo included the word modern, as the scallops and fish were battered and fried like most seafood in NC.I thought the sliders and... More

While driving south on our way to Charleston,we made an overnight stop in Wilmington. Looking for a place to dine, we "stumbled " into Catch. What a pleasant experience! The food was outstanding and the service impeccable. Our server Jeniffer did an excellent job guiding us through the menu and making sure that we had a very pleasant experience.

This restaurant is located in a small strip mall, along Market St. with all of the car dealerships, and proves that if you are good people will find you. I had the crab cake for an appetizer and having lived in Maryland for 10 years I can say I am critical of crab cakes, and I was impressed with this... More

The food (lobster) was good but not to the level of quality that I had been told and expected. Expensive for the quality and total value of the meal.

On our 3rd visit, Chef Keith Rhodes leaves no doubt he was a finalist on Iron Chef. We hadn't been in a while, but WOW, we enjoyed our Honeyed/Soy Salmon over rice noodles with Chinese vegetables. The flavor splashed in your mouth. Also enjoyed our wines selections, and for those that want to try small brewery beers, they have some... More

The strip mall location belies the fact that this is the hands down best restaurant in the Cape Fear region. The food is absolutely fresh and inspired. The service is impeccable. This is the meal that you don't want to be over. A reservation is a must have. The only caveat is that those whose palates crave only the traditional... More

Located along a busy strip of auto dealers, plumbing supplies and furniture stores is this gem tucked into a tiny strip (look for the blue awnings). We visited on a quiet Friday night and were treated to a wonderful meal. The menu offered a nice variety of fish, duck and pork, with several inviting specials. Crab Cakes are the best... More

Food was amazing, as you cannot tell that the place you pull into is going to have food that is as good if not better than seafood you would get in the biggest cities in the US. Unique offerings with tremendous flavor and presentation. Real "DIAMOND in the ROUGH"
